Success in the Statistics

One question I continue to circle back to after posting  my best finish in FPL of 31k, how do I start the season stronger? Seems a simple question to answer at the end of the season, looking over all the top scoring players, but why were some of them not considered at the start of the season? Is there more preparation required or possibly a better way to look at new season and the prospects it holds?

FPL: A Look Ahead

I’ve listened to a number of season ending FPL podcasts the last week, as well as dropping Episode 39: Season Ender Bender of The Pitch & Pint Podcast. While we call it the “off season” and some managers may take a break, I am considering how to improve my game ahead of next season.

Premier League: GW37 Starting XI

Still reeling from that 16 points I took ahead of GW35, chasing points, any plan I had to see the season out was thrown out the window. Based on fixtures, before United went tits up, I was playing double United to finish the season. Then it was double Palace with Milivojevic and Zaha. Jota partnering with Jimenez, then crossed my mind. Now, a few hours before Friday kickoff, the team has been finalized. Continue reading “Premier League: GW37 Starting XI”
